't have a revenue problem, it has a spending problem. and under this administration, under president obama, we have seen record deficits and a record debt accumulate, and yet he keeps demanding that we raise taxes to pay for more spending. this will only hurt our economy. ernst and young has done an analysis of the president's proposal and said it will cost several hundreds thousands of jobs. there is a better way and the speaker has laid it out. it is an approach that calls for tax reform by reforming the tax code and passing responsible spending cuts in order to get our fiscal house in order. that's what america wants. this is our opportunity to do the big things. this is our moment to provide that leadership that america desperately wants and we stand here ready to take the action necessary. >> the american people are hurting right now and now is the moment where we need to step up to the plate and solve the problem. i don't know how any of us can look our kids and grandkids in the eye and explain to them that we aren't willing to pay for the things we are enjoying today but just going

a letter urging speaker boehner to take the last hexit before the cliff. neither president obama nor democrats in congress have ever been ambiguous about our proposal to provide economic security for 98% of american families and 97% of small businesses while asking the wealthiest 2% to contribute just a little more to stop this runaway debt. and now that even a dyed in the wool conservative like senator coburn of oklahoma has endorsed the democratic approach, here's what he said, "i know we have to raise revenue. i would rather see the rates go up," he said. he's been heavily involved in everything that's happened in the last several years in washington dealing with debt. when he joins in, that's really significant. it is apparent how this will end. the only question is, when will it end? it's how long will speaker boehner make middle-class families wait for relief and how long will he force the financial markets to wait for u un-- wait for certainty? the longer he delays, the greater i think ris the risk to. so i urge him, don't listen to me, listen to your own caucus. listen to pru

obama's argument has been that the economy is doing well enough that it could handle a tax hike. if the economy were in recession, as we saw last time, he would be reluctant to lift that top rate. if the economy is growing sharply, then if there's some damage from lifting the top rate, maybe the economy could afford it. gdp growth number is not as strong as the jobs report f we had a really weak jobs report, the president would have a really hard time, even getting moderate democrats, to increase the marginal rate. the fact that it's a strong report puts wind in his sails. >> kevin, you've touched on it a little bit. can you be more specific about what you think we're missing from today's report? >> well, i think that what's missing from the report, if we're looking at the health of the overall economy, is that businesses are really pessimistic right now. we've had five months in a row where the orders for capital goods have been going down and, in fact, going down sharply. very often business investment is the thing that turns down right before you have a recession. we have thi
